We are a nation proud of our education, health, quality and productivity.

The importance of our human talent relies on providing our society with wide health care system coverage, high quality education and labor growth opportunities. Our stability as a nation has proven, along the years, that we are a top choice for providing reliable and responsible high quality services for diverse industries around the globe.

We stand out because of our delivery of timely and valuable results, powered by our innovative culture.

Costa Rica’s nearshore location makes it an ideal choice since we share similar time zones and cultures. Although it is a Spanish-speaking country, English language education starts at an early age resulting in a high proficiency level on a significant percentage of the population.

Our history of democracy and social stability are elements that have facilitated our outstanding development.
